Children's Ministries

When a child is baptized at St. Pauls, we promise to care for that child and show with our lives how Christians live.

So we ask ourselves, how do Christians live? We practice hospitality, we join together in worship, we live as a people who are part of a sacred story, and we work together for a more just and loving world. We are a congregation that understands that Christian education is not confined to a Sunday School room but takes place in every aspect of our time together. For the children and youth of St. Pauls, opportunities abound to practice our faith: exploring our faith stories, creating worship experiences, singing together, serving others through outreach projects, and even playing together. Nearly 200 kids "practice" weekly. All are welcome.
